Homework Statement


The mass of a single HE atom is 6.65e-27kg. You have 5.00e-6 mole of HE gas which is occupying a volume of 1.00e-4m^3. when at pressure of 100Pa. Determine the temp of gas AND the average speed of the gas molecules.

**I've found the temp of gas i need help on the avg speed - i believe i'm close

Homework Equations


Vrms=[tex]\sqrt{3(R)(T)/(M)}[/tex]


The Attempt at a Solution


Vrms=[tex]\sqrt{3(8.31J/mol K)(241)/(6.65e-27kg????)}[/tex]

i'm not certain if i use 6.65e-27kg as molar mass?

Note it gives you the mass of a single atom

You have 5.00e-6 mole of HE gas
This is the amount of moles present

i'm not certain if i use 6.65e-27kg as molar mass?
After reading the above do you still think this?
